Background:

I have been practicing psychiatry for nearly twenty years, first in Vienna, Austria, where I had the honor of studying medicine, then here, in New York City.

Being trilingual, I provide consultation and treatment in English, German and Russian.

I love my job. I also love reading, writing, music, and living in New York City.

Methodology

My Approach:

In my practice I provide psychopharmacology, psychotherapy and a guidance on life style modification that may significantly improve my patients' well-being. I believe in treatment which takes into account the whole person with their psychiatric, psychological, social and spiritual issues. In psychotherapy I use the eclectic approach, which combines elements of different kinds of psychotherapeutic treatment such as Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Hypnotherapy, Interpersonal Therapy and Supportive Therapy. Beyond all this, my role as a therapist and a psychiatrist is to foster hope and insight, decrease suffering and help my patients achieve more freedom through personal growth.

  • Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)
  • Eclectic
  • Existential
  • Family / Marital

Specialties

I specialize in Depression, Anxiety, Grief, Fear, and Medication Management. Being a medical doctor specialized in psychiatry gives me a perspective on possible medical causes of psychiatric symptoms and allows me both to prescribe medications and to offer individual psychotherapy.
